Can an international student studying in the USA with CPT part-time work authorization, work remotely for a firm in the UK? It is possible or one needs the UK work visa as well? If the UK firm offers fulltime remote work, can one take it?
Generally, F1 students can only work in certain situations:
- on-campus - foreign remote work is obviously not on-campus
- on OPT - in this case you would have an EAD, and can work for anyone full-time as long as it's in your field
- on CPT - for this you can only work for a specific company, and I don't think they would designate remote work for this
- if you get an EAD for economic hardship - in this case you can work for anyone full-time
I am assuming you don't have an EAD and this is not CPT, in which case, you can only work on-campus, so I would say the answer to your question is no, you cannot work remotely for this company while in F1 status in the US.
